HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: SERU Survey:
Dear Honors Students:  The 2009 University of Florida Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) survey gives you an opportunity to provide us with feedback about your undergraduate experience. We want to know what's important to you, what's working well, and what's not working so well. When the survey is over, we will share the results with you. The survey is available through ISIS. You may login to the survey using your student ID.

UF's interest in hearing from you is very sincere. With that in mind, we want to strongly encourage you to fill the survey out if you wish to become eligible to participate in the student season football ticket lottery. If you are an undergraduate student who is 18 years old or older, complete the survey on or before the last day of football lottery registration. For more information on SERU and the football lottery, visit the UF SERU Web site at http://www.aa.ufl.edu/SERU/index.html  

There are a number of other great reasons to participate in the SERU survey.  Every student completing the survey will be eligible for $3,000 in rewards, including $50 coupons from the UF Bookstore; various items from the bookstore; meal gift cards from Gator dining, and sessions with a personal trainer at the Student Recreation & Fitness Center.   Students who finish the survey will also get a buy-one, get-one-free offer of admission to the fabulous Florida Museum of Natural History Butterfly Rainforest.  Participation in the survey is voluntary and will not affect your grades, registration or enrollment in any way. The survey takes only 25 minutes to complete.   Thank you for your input!
